The odds of any single qualifying entry winning the Sweepstakes then become one chance out of the total number of qualifying entries. For example, if you submit one of a total of 100,000 qualifying entries, your chances of winning are 1/100,000.

Determination of disqualification and eligibility shall be at the sole discretion of the Sponsors.
F. Persons Related to Sponsors or their Partners
Certain persons are ineligible to enter the Sweepstakes or to win any Prize because of their relationship to the Sponsor or the Sponsor’s partners: these include employees and members of their households, whether or not related, and immediate families (spouses, parents, siblings, children and each of their respective spouses regardless of where they reside) of Sponsors, and any other participating parties and each of their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, dealerships, and affiliates, and their advertising and promotion agencies and all local sponsors. Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a background check on any potential Prize winner and reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any person based on such background check if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that the apparent Winner is not eligible to win a Prize.
One (1) potential Prize winner will be chosen by Sponsor in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received during the entire Sweepstakes Period. The selection shall be made within seven (7) days of the Closing Date by an independent third party who is not eligible to win the Sweepstakes or through the use of a randomizing and anonymous sweepstakes management program or “app.”
The potential Prize winner will be notified via e-mail within ten (10) days after selection of a winner, except as provided in Paragraph IV. C below.

i. All Prize winners will be notified by email within seven (7) days of the applicable drawing date. The Prize winner may be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and release of publicity/liability (“Affidavit”) within seven (7) days of notification.
ii. If any email is returned as undeliverable, and a potential Prize winner cannot be contacted within seven (7) days of the first attempt to contact him/her, fails to return the signed Affidavit within seven (7) days, or if the potential Prize winner is deemed ineligible for any other reason in Sponsor’s sole discretion, including failure to comply with these Official Rules, the applicable Prize award to the referenced potential winner shall be forfeited, the Prize winner shall be disqualified, and an alternate Prize winner will be selected as noted below.
iii. The potential Prize winner shall be subject to eligibility verification. The potential Prize winner will be required to provide verification of their identity and proof of their entry. The winner must then execute a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (“Affidavit”), and to return both documents within thirty (30) days following notification of their eligibility for award.

In addition, the potential Prize winner may be required to provide picture proof of identification, which may include a driver’s license, passport, voting card or similar government issued identification, and proof that she/he is the entrant that submitted the applicable winning Entry. The return of a Prize and/or Prize notification as undeliverable may result in forfeiture of the Prize. In no case shall Sponsor be liable in any manner where a potential Prize winner has not received notification sent from Sponsor or where Sponsor fails to receive a response from the potential Prize winner within the required response period. The winning Entry, as well as the associated information of the potential Prize winner, must identically match the records maintained by Sponsor in order for a Prize to be awarded. In the event of a dispute, the information provided by entrant and maintained by Sponsor will govern. Entries will be deemed made by the person under whose e-mail address the Entry was submitted, regardless of who actually submitted the Entry.
